President Obama Defends "Just War" in Nobel Speech; Says Non-Violence Would Not Have Stopped "Hitler's Armies" - Video 12/10/09

Watch CBS News Videos Online

Here is video of a short part of President Obama's Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech, which he delivered in Oslo, Norway today. In this clip, Obama defended the necessity of war at times, and even came right out and said "a non-violent movement could not have halted Hitler's armies."

President Obama should be commended for making the case for "just war" in front of a European audience that may have been shocked (as shocked as we are) to hear him make that case, and even defend the role of the United States in underpinning post- World War II stability with our military and the "blood" of our men and women in uniform.

He is the most eloquent orator of our age. As such, why are you surprised -let alone shocked- to hear these words passing his lips?

He speaks what the teleprompter tells him to speak.

If he believes the words that he spoke here, even better, but at least this wasn't a speech in which he apologized to the rest of the world for America being the country it is today, for America's history, and for American interests.

What could have stopped Hitler? How about an assassination squad? Why didn't the Allies target Hitler early on in the war?

The problem with Obama's argument is that if the main objective was to stop Hitler, and if Hitler was the problem, why weren't assassination squads sent into Germany to take him out? Because war is great for business.

We didn't go into WWII because we wanted business. We went into WWII because we were defending our family, our friends and our freedom. Plus, many assassinations against Hitler were attempted, even from the Germans themselves. We are in Afghanistan for the same reason we were in WWII: to defend our family, our friends, and our freedom. That is the strongest justification for war that I can think of. War is Hell, but that's the beauty of the US soldier. That man or woman goes through Hell to save those they love.

God bless the Army.
God bless the Marines.
And God bless America
